Avoid black screen on Ryzen 7 / ThreadRipper / RX7xxx - perhaps others as well

You may be able to avoid black screen if you - prior to rebooting after the update - sync the latest stable kernel Linux 6.4.

sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux64
budgie-desktop >= 10.7.2-6 update requires manual intervention

When upgrading from budgie-desktop 10.7.2-5 to 10.7.2-6, the package mutter43 must be replaced with magpie-wm, which currently depends on mutter. As mutter43 conflicts with mutter, manual intervention is required to complete the upgrade.

First remove mutter43, then immediately perform the upgrade. Do not relog or reboot between these steps.

pacman -Rdd mutter43
pacman -Syu

Steam cashes on startup with lib32-libgudev installed

The latest lib32-libgudev update does not cooperate with the version of the same package provided by steam, and steam seems to attempt making calls to both leading to the crash.

Details: bug report, arch task, arch forum thread.

  • Workaround #1 (causes steam to avoid making any calls to lib32-libgudev by using a different library altogether)

    • sudo pacman -S lib32-libnm
  • Workaround #2 (forces steam and any other application to always use the new lib32-libgudev)

    • sudo pacman -S lib32-libudev0-shim
  • Workaround #3 (use steam-native-runtime, which doesn’t have the issue)

    • sudo pacman -S steam-native-runtime


libpamac 11.5.5-1 breaks update function

We are currently working on fixing a reported security vulnerability which gave you root access via pamac-daemon. During that process we broke the update functionality. Hence use sudo pacman -Syu to update to the latest libpamac release (11.5.7-2)

The community repository has been merged into extra and is now empty

The Arch git migration is now complete .

The [community] repository has been merged into [extra] and is now empty.
It may take a bit of time for mirrors to catch up (more details here).

Update your system and handle the pacman

sudo pacman -Syu "pacman>=6.0.2-11"

In order to remove the defunct [community] repo changes must be made to /etc/pacman.conf.
Changes will be provided in a file with the extension .pacnew.
Pacman provides the utility pacdiff to manage these files and will use vim -d for comparison if the environment variable DIFFPROG is not set.

pacdiff -s

If you would like to use a different comparison tool you may prepend the env var:

DIFFPROG=meld pacdiff -s

Then sync with the repositories again:

sudo pacman -Syu

And you can also remove the now unused repository.

sudo pacman -Sc

NOTE: Be aware that this last command will also remove all packages in the pacman cache that are not currently installed: in other words, backup copies of packages that you have uninstalled at some point will no longer be stored on your hard drive.

In most cases, this probably will not cause headaches. To prevent even minor aches and pains, see the Arch Wiki for information on cleaning the cache

Steam fails to launch

A while ago the Steam Runtime developer maintaining the library detection/promotion “greatly encouraged” that the Steam package would (opt)depends on lib32-libnm and friends. The bugs have been opened since alas

In the absence of an updated steam package with updated dependencies,
A workaround is to install lib32-libnm

sudo pacman -Syu lib32-libnm

Steam will not launch - #12 by cscs

OpenBLAS >= 0.3.23-2 update requires manual intervention

2023-06-14 - Felix Yan

The openblas package prior to version 0.3.23-2 doesn’t ship optimized LAPACK routine and CBLAS/LAPACKE interfaces for compatibility. This decision has been reverted now, and the ability to choose a different default system BLAS/LAPACK implementation while keeping openblas installed is now provided to allow future co-installation of BLIS, ATLAS, etc.

The default BLAS implementation will be used for most packages like NumPy or R. Please install blas-openblas and blas64-openblas to make OpenBLAS the default BLAS implementation, just like the old behavior.

Unfortunately you will get errors on updating if you currently have OpenBLAS installed as the default BLAS implementation:

error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: installing openblas (0.3.23-2) breaks dependency 'blas' required by cblas
:: installing openblas (0.3.23-2) breaks dependency 'blas' required by lapack

Please append your preferred default BLAS implementation to the regular -Syu command line to get around it. For example:

sudo pacman -Syu blas-openblas


sudo pacman -Syu blas

TeX Live package reorganization

2023-06-18 - Antonio Rojas

Starting from version 2023.66594-9, TeX Live packages have been reorganized to mirror upstream collections. Even though the new texlive-basic replaces the old texlive-core, many of the texlive-core contents (including language specific files) are now split between different packages. To find out which Arch package contains a specific CTAN package, you can use the tlmgr utility, eg.

$ tlmgr info euler | grep collection
collection:  collection-latexrecommended

which means the euler CTAN package is contained in texlive-latexrecommended. You may also use pacman -F to query for specific files.

A new metapackage texlive-meta is available to install all subpackages (except for language specific ones), and the new texlive-doc package provides the full documentation for offline use.

Pamac GUI theme does not match theme for Xfce

pamac-gtk 11.0.1 uses Gtk 4 that is not supported by Xfce
user can replace pamac-gtk with pamac-gtk3

sudo pacman -S pamac-gtk3
Black screen after login with SDDM 0.20

Check ~/.profile for any commands that don’t execute properly (but return non-zero exit code instead). May include ~/.bash_profile and .zprofile too. Downgrading to SDDM 0.19 also restores desktop after login.

The issue has been reported upstream.


DKMS is currently broken as our kernels got compiled against an older gcc

Since the last stable update provided an older toolchain our kernels and binaries got compiled against GCC 12.2.0-1. A similar issue was already posted at Arch years ago: [SOLVED] Kernel 5.5.2 is built with the wrong version of gcc / [testing] Repo Forum / Arch Linux Forums. Therefore users of DKMS have to wait for kernel updates compiled against the new toolchain or downgrade to the older one.

Update (2023-06-05): We pushed a rebuild of all regular kernels against the new toolchain to all branches. Real-Time Kernels we still have to check.

Many applications (firefox, thunderbird, telegram, etc) slow to start on desktops other than Gnome

There is a bug with xdg-desktop-portal-gnome (more details here).

Workaround for gtk-based desktops (including Xfce)
sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-gtk
Workaround for KDE
sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-kde
Workaround for Lxqt
sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-lxqt
Workaround for desktops using hyprland
sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-hyprland
Workaround for desktops using wlroots
sudo pacman -Rdd xdg-desktop-portal-gnome
sudo pacman -S xdg-desktop-portal-wlr

If you have a lot of pip/AUR packages to upgrade to Python 3.11, read this.

If you installed python311 from the AUR, you need to uninstall it before running this update.


All initramfs builds fail with ERROR: Hook ‘zfs’ cannot be found

There was an issue with zfs-utils 2.1.11-1 package having the initcipio files wrongly installed. Please update to zfs-utils 2.1.11-1.1 and re-run mkinitcpio -P. If you have an already unbootable system, you may recover by using an install media and chroot into it to complete the update.

GRUB, LUKS and full disk encryption: 'no such cryptodisk found'

Following grub’s update, new configuration may be needed to be manually applied:

  • Based on the manual, unlike filesystem UUIDs, UUIDs for encrypted devices must be specified without dash separators. So check /boot/grub/grub.cfg for entries like cryptomount -u 3722dfb2-3b32-414b-bd59-4329fa92b6a9 and try to remove the dash separators. You have to redo that whenever you update a kernel or call update-grub on your own. You can read more about it here
  • A message “no such cryptodisk found” may appear on the following reboot, but should not prevent you from continuing by typing any key. This happens if you forgot to remove the dashes in /boot/grub/grub.cfg after update-grub got called.

We may add a alpm-hook to grub package to do that monkey job for you automatically. As an alternative you may reinstall grub, as the newer version can handle both cases, including the dashes.

Switch to the base-devel meta package requires manual intervention

On February 2nd, the base-devel package group has been replaced by a meta package of the same name.
If you installed the base-devel package group prior to this date, explicitly re-install it to get the new base-devel package installed on the system:

pacman -Syu base-devel

vlc player crashes while playing videos

A solution, regarding to rob215x, is:
VLC would crash immediately when trying to play any video. I opened VLC directly, and changed Preferences > Video > Output from “Automatic” to “VDPAU” and it works now. I found that solution on another thread but I still don’t understand the problem and why VDPAU works.


PHP 8.2 update and introduction of legacy branch

2023-01-13 - Pierre Schmitz

The php packages have been updated to the latest version 8.2. In addition to this, a new set of php-legacy packages have been introduced. These will follow the oldest but still actively supported PHP branch. This enables users to install the latest version but also introduces the option to use third party applications that might rely on an older version. Both branches will be kept up to date following our rolling release model. php and php-legacy can be installed at the same time as the latter uses a -legacy suffix for its binaries and configuration files.

In addition to this, the php7 packages have been removed as they reached end of life. The imap extension will no longer be provided as it relies on the c-client library which has been abandoned for many years.

Help reviewing the next stable release of Manjaro Linux

Is this problem already solved or should us avoid installing archlinux-appstream-data?

I ran the update without archlinux-appstream-data and everything went fine.

after the update i was forced to refresh the keyrings. syncing keyrings needs the proper timer. went in trouble because the update disabled the systemd-timesyncd.service that was active before update. do i really have to mask every service in advance ?

Good news, the bug that made RX7000 gpus not work with linux 6.1 is fixed
Bad news: Linux 6.4 still does not speak BTLE

Don’t know whether it is related to Manjaro per se. But I have started experiencing Freesync flickering since switching to kernel 6.4 at the last stable release. Now with 6.5 release I really started to notice it

Disabling Freesync in KDE Display Configuration stops the flickering. If set to always active the effect can be seen on desktop as well.

I’ll revert to 6.1 LTS to see if it occurs on it and switch back to amd_pstate=passive it is is related.

Somewhat unrelated, but NVidia users have the same problem ( Source ).

The temporary solution for NVidia is switching to “auto”, wait 5 seconds, then back to “max performance” in the NVidia control panel under “powermixer”. every restart. Its pretty much confirmed that the flicker bug on pascal (10xx/20xx) cards is related to the GPU switching power states.

Maybe there is something similar going on with AMD and its actually a kernel problem?

After updating, I noticed that every time I’d shut down my PC, it would still stay on in a sense, light on and all and require a hard shutdown. This only happened after updating to 6.5 and stopped as soon as I reverted back to 6.4

Tested minimal xfce; installation went fine one remark.
this notication turned it off but keeps coming back.

Any chance linux65-zfs modules will be released ? Would like to test zfs

This issue continues to persist. In the previous update, I did not encounter this problem!

On one of my systems sudo DIFFPROG=kompare pacdiff -s indicated I had some changes to make to /etc/ssh/sshd_config, though I may have missed that in a previous update rather than this one. Otherwise my systems seem fine with this update so far.

my backward/ forward mouse buttons do not work anymore in gwenview. in browser and dolphin they still work

One sneaky that may have slipped past people in the flurry of messages during the upgrade is that Mariadb databases need to be upgraded.
Restart Mariadb, then run mariadb-upgrade -u root -p.

On a side-note, Ryzen users who depend on lm_sensors might be advised against upgrading the kernel, as the it87 kernel module needed for sensors is no longer available. It seems to still exist on github, so I’ve cloned it and intend to try manually building it on my “playground” system image.

[Edit]: I’ve built it87 from github and can confirm that this makes sensors work on my Ryzen. No need to remove the existing it87 install, as building it only installs it on the running kernel. Be aware that this module is no longer actively maintained, so it may not be of any use for newer hardware. It seems strange that a mainstream CPU like Ryzen has no “official” sensors module, but such is life…

The CPU itself has k10temp, any other sensor is specific to the motherboard. Unfortunately ITE Tech no longer make datasheets publicly available for their chips so blame them…

A post was split to a new topic: Stuck on the EFI boot screen

pacman.conf still had [community] active on my desktop but not my laptop. It gave an error error: failed to synchronize all databases (no servers configured for repository) I corrected it manually and the update went thru.

Still 2 errors showed up thats introduced last 2 month:
Error showed up in journal for my PC intel/nvidia (Manjaro KDE).

$ journalctl -p 3 -xb:
kernel: ucsi_ccg 0-0008: failed to get FW build information

Error showed up in journal for my AMD Laptop (Manjaro KDE).

$ journalctl -p 3 -xb:
kernel: amd_gpio AMDI0030:00: Invalid config param 0013

Both system using 6.1 LTS.

Nvidia Monitor Flickering also still happends with my Nvidia 2080Ti on my PC, but greatly reduced with the new driver version.
